"The Boston Marathon calendar change means that our Startling Line run landed on the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack. We took a 20 second moment of silence to remember the victims. In thinking back to that Tuesday morning 20 years ago, what I remember most after the shock and tragedy of the day, the bravery exhibited by first responders & regular folks, the overwhelming sadness, is the empathy that followed. People were generous in their offerings of small acts of kindness & care for one another. There was a spirit of unity that was palpable. I asked the runners to conjure it again - to bring forth a spirit of unity & empathy, to carry that with them on the run. It's something our global running tribe is known for and something we can all aspire to revisit on a daily basis in loving tribute to those we lost on that day.
The Starting Line Run powered by Nike Running is a highlight of every training cycle. Thanks everyone who made it out. It was a special day." via @coachdanbos—
